My Resolutions Day 203

Sunday 13 August 2017

I played on Uncharted 4 on survival mode with my brother and one of his friends last night. It was fun; I’ve never been on that mode before. The mode came out when I lent my friend the game. We got to wave 40 before my brother’s friend went off. We played this mode on Uncharted 2 when it first came out; I remember playing hours of it with them.

I’ve got a rough plan I want to do. I will be trying to wake up early tomorrow to finish writing it out. I want to try waking up earlier from now on.

I haven’t been feeling well today and I managed to sleep for a little bit around 18:00 to 21:00. The pain in my side has made me just want to lie in bed. I haven’t got any plans for tonight; I might read or might just try to fall asleep. Tomorrow I hope to finish writing out my plan and see if I can make a schedule.

My Resolutions Day 202

Saturday 12 August 2017

Just a reminder that I posted some of my writing yesterday, which you can find here, http://wp.me/p7amTY-9Q

The day hasn’t been too bad, it’s been sunny but not too hot, I made my Yu-Gi-Oh deck and played a few games with my friend, I managed to win them all; the new deck I made has some really powerful cards.

My OCD hasn’t bothered me too much today, just trying to relax for the moment.

I am going to try and write a drama scene and a sci-fi scene tonight.

I have been thinking about making something like a five-year-plan, I will sort it out tomorrow and post what my plan of action will be.

My Resolutions Day 201

Friday 11 August 2017

I’m not feeling too bad today, I managed to think about some stuff and I’ll be able to put it into action later.

Not much has happened today, but I will be posting my writing below.

My OCD didn’t get in my way too much when writing.

These were just scenes I wrote at random, it was written as it came to me, no planned structure. These haven’t been edited, you might find spelling mistakes, grammar mistakes, or think the prose is hard to read.

I see this one as a western story.

Upturned tables scattered around with the splinters of snapped chairs; the alcohol decanting onto the floor, the splatter loader and the only source of noise after the gunfire. The smell of gunpowder was mixed with the evening air. The man opened his gun’s chamber, checking how much he had left as sweat dripped on to the chamber; he wiped it off by gently flicking his thumb over it. He set the chamber back in place. Three bullets left and four men standing. He’d need to line two of them up and hoped the bullet would perforate the first one and penetrate the other deep enough to at least immobilise. It’d be easier to run away but the man never usually got lucky enough to avoid getting into a first in the first place, let alone get away once one started.

The man looked at a piece of shattered mirror; he could see the kaleidoscopic reflection of one of the men outside peering around the corner. The man gripped the gun lightly with his right hand, keeping his finger ever ready, he placed his left hand gently over the barrel of his gun and breathed in as deeply but calmly as possible. He needed to get a hold of one of the guns the enemy had. The corridor along the side should be narrow. Draw them into close courters and collect their gun while seeking cover and positioning enemies.

I see this as a samurai story.

The man’s sword swung down only to be met by the Stranger’s steel. A low clank hollowed throughout the back of the forest. The Stranger had only partly drawn his sword, more than half remanded within the scabbard.

“I don’t know what you hope to gain by attacking me, if you want money, I can give you enough for a meal tonight.”

The man leant his body to his right and another man rushed towards them. The second man’s sword sliced through the air, cutting into the slowly falling snow, and now that sword was about to cut into something just as unique as a snowflake; a life.

The Stranger smacked his palm into the man’s chest, the man staggered back, sliding a little on the snow. The Stanger stepped back and dodged the second man’s strike. The Stranger was going to speak again, asking them to reconsider, however, the second man tried to thrust his sword into the Stanger’s chest. The sword slid past the Stranger as he sidestepped and he simultaneously drew his sword in one fluid motion; gripping his sword, which hung by his left side with his right hand facing backward, drawing the sword upside-down. The stranger grabbed the man’s wrist and pulled in the same direction as his side step and as he twisted the man’s wrist, he drew his sword across the man’s right ankle.

The man fell to the ground, his arms splayed out in front of him, his sword sliding from his hand. The Stranger looked at the other men, his eyes pleading with them not to exacerbate this scuffle further. The first man ran at him with another man, both aiming for the Strangers chest.

The Stranger took a step in and a step to his left just when his opponent’s sword was nearing his chest. He grabbed his opponent’s forearm and ran the edge of his sword along the top of his opponent’s hand. As his opponent was disarmed, the other assailant had switched position and stepped behind his ally and swung down. The Stranger dexterously spun the sword around to face upwards and placed his foot in-between the man he’s just cut and swiped; the man came crashing down. The incoming attack by the other man was parried skillfully, as the sword came into contact with the Stranger’s, the Stranger took another instep and turned his sword slightly, so the edge of his blade was touching the back of his opponent’s sword and he pushed down, causing his opponent’s sword to be forced down to an unfavourable position. The Strange smashed his hilt into the man’s chest, the Stranger seized the man’s shoulder and pulled him downwards towards him and the Stranger crashed his hilt into the back of the man’s neck.

The man fell to the floor, the Stranger looked at the men who attacked him; he reached into his pocket and pulled out a few coins and placed them in the hand of the man he just attacked.

I see this as a horror story.

The door opened to absolute darkness. The blackness resonating out, ringing to all things to came and be devoured. It wouldn’t even do it justice to merely call it something so easily imagined as absolute darkness; the abyssopelagic, dense blackness; the personal demon calling blackness; the brutal soul crushing blackness.

A blackness such that even calling it a lack of colour isn’t correct, it wasn’t a question of what it didn’t reflect, but what it devoured. The void of everything, a perfect resonating silence; not of sound, but of the soul. The utter lack of anything stood us in our tracks. None dared to step forward, not at first, to cross that threshold held a deeper meaning to all present, to enter meant to admit; to state something clearly for the demons that lurked within to hear; that we are here, we are ignorant, and we are foolish.

Let me know what you think, what did you like and what can I improve?

Thanks for reading.

My Resolutions Day 200

Thursday 10 August 2017

I went on Uncharted 3 again today; I’ve gotten to the part with the pirates. I remember the game fairly well and I’ve been able to go through it quickly.

I got my Yu-Gi-Oh cards today, now I feel like a kid again. Going to see what cards I want in my new deck, I’ve looked through the new cards and picked out what ones I want to use, now to add some of my old cards.

I’ve written a little more of my random scenes, just seeing what other genres I could do. I’ll probably to a romance and sci-fi, then I will post them.

Hopefully this month I can sort myself out a little bit in my reading and writing.

My Resolutions Day 199

Wednesday 09 August 2017

I wrote today with a friend, we managed to write a lot. We were discussing certain scenes and how we thought they’d play out. We had fun.

We also played Yu-Gi-Oh. My friend got a new deck and wanted to try it out. I haven’t played Yu-Gi-Oh in about 10 years. I still have my old deck from back then, I remember playing it in school. My deck only has cards from 10 years ago, I managed to win both our duels, but they were hard, the new cards are powerful. I bought two starter deck packs of new cards, I know what they contain as one of them was also bought by my friend and I’d looked through it and I looked at the cards of the other deck on the Yu-Gi-Oh Wiki.

I plan to go on Uncharted 3 again tonight. I might see if I can try it on Crushing if I can get through Hard fast enough. I seem to be getting through it faster than I thought.

My Resolutions Day 198

Tuesday 08 August 2017

I’ve managed to finish sorting out my clothes. I’ve cut them down a lot now. I don’t know what else I can cut down on, I still need to play a lot of my games before I trade them in.

I played on Uncharted 3 for the first time in a while. It’s a fun game, I managed to get 50% complete in four hours. I couldn’t sleep so I spent from 2:00 AM to 6:00 AM. I’m playing on hard mode, it’s not that hard but I know Crushing mode is incredibly hard. I don’t know if I’ll go back on it on Crushing difficulty.

I managed to get some writing done. I need to get over deleting things because I don’t think it is good enough. I still plan to post the random writing scenes, however, I thought I’d do more, but I get focused on the one I am doing.

My Resolutions Day 197

Monday 07 August 2017

I’m going to try and write a little bit more than I usually do in these posts. If you notice some days are really short, it’s probably because I’m really sick. I guess I have to start doing more exciting things in order to keep people engaged.

I sorted through my clothes, trying them on and seeing what ones still sit reasonably well. I have about five pairs left and will give away the ones that don’t fit anymore, which is about seven. I am going to go through the t-shirt again tomorrow to see if I can get the number down. I have a lot of t-shirts, so I am sure I can get it down a little.

I am thinking about how best to start writing some posts, I have an idea for a few, I just need to write something and think that’s it’s good, I start to write a post and then think it’s bad or I can do better. I want the posts to be the best that they can be, when I read a sentence I don’t think is good, I question if the rest is ok.

I plan to get all my clothes sorted tomorrow and hopefully get writing done.

My Resolutions Day 196

Sunday 06 August 2017

I managed to sleep for a few hours; I wasn’t too tired though, so I managed to get some things done. I’m going through my clothes, trying them on and seeing if they fit.

I will post my random scene writing tomorrow. I have a few posts planned out, some will take a little longer than others but I hope to have a few written out soon. I hope that I can actually write and not get distracted.

I should finish going through my clothes tomorrow and after I’ll start studying for my exam. I want to see if I can get some reading in tomorrow too if I have time.

I’m wondering if I should make these posts longer, usually, when I’m sick I tend to write short posts but I can make them longer and see if that makes a difference, but I won’t be making them really long though.

My Resolutions Day 195

Saturday 05 August 2017

I’m really tired; I’ve been having a few nights of no or little sleep. I went to my niece’s Christening, so I’ve been up early. She was very good, she cried a little in the church, but not for long. I saw friends there and I met nice people.

I planned to write a little today, but when I got home I just felt too tired too. Hopefully tomorrow I will write a little.

I have to study for an exam next week and try and sort out my clothes.

My Resolutions Day 194

Friday 04 August 2017

I haven’t slept yet, so I’ve just been lazing about. I walked around a larger town today, to pass the time. The traffic was really slow today; I think because of a diversion, so a trip that would have been around 25 minutes ended up taking about 1 hour and 15 minutes. I spent some time on Diablo 3 while I couldn’t sleep.

My niece is getting baptised tomorrow. I have to be up early, which should be fine if I manage to get some sleep tonight, however, if I don’t sleep again I think I’ll be too tired to concentrate.

I wrote a little last night, writing out scenes. I think sometime tomorrow or Sunday I’ll post what I wrote.

My OCD bothered me a today but I think that’s because I’m tired.
